Woolard Family \\ Raleigh, NC

I don't get to go to downtown Raleigh, NC much anymore so I was stoked to get the opportunity to hang out with Kim, Sam and Dennis for family portraits while we wandered the downtown area.  

Becca Stevens \\ Durham, NC

I shot some urban musician portrait photos of jazz vocalist Becca Stevens at Motorco Music Hall in Durham, NC recently.  Motorco Music Hall was her first stop along a tour with Ben Sollee.

Mike Jesurun \\ Durham, NC

Mike Jesurun: Drummer for Cold Country, Teenage Rage and Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers

Mike came to town with Stelth Ulvang and I got to shoot some urban portrait photography of him at Full Steam Brewery in downtown Durham, NC before their show at The Pinhook.

Mike was quiet. Confident. and reflective.

Candice Torian l Professional, Urban Portraits l Downtown Durham, NC

Last month I was encouraged by some local talent. Candice Torian.

Candice is launching a startup that helps folks that are new to the Triangle transition to our area smoothly.  It's called the "The Newbee Network".

Here are her professional, urban portraits taken in downtown Durham, NC.  All of these portraits were taken right around Coco Cinnamon!

Experimental Portrait Photography - Julian, NC

I recently got invited to an experimental fashion shoot "meet up" by model Sarah Robertson (FB).  She seamlessly pulled together an eclectic group of diverse photographers, make-up artist and models.  

This was a first for me to be able to shoot models.  I think I'll do more. 

Here are some of the photographs that were taken from this shoot.  

MODELS: Morgan Whited, Cheri Green, Sarah Latta, Emily Chandler

MAKE-UP ARTIST: Chenee Jones, Cyera Babbs, Sandy Johnston

Jonathan + Plymouth 🀆 Julian, North Carolina

I met Jonathan Oliveau while I was literally running to my car trying to get back to Durham, NC in time for my wife to take our car (side note: last year we traded our 2nd car in for a bike). Anyways, he was the first person I met as I pulled into his farm-style home in Julian, North Carolina.  

I was there for a fashion shoot with some models and his wife happened to be one of the make-up artists for them.  

As I talked to him I could tell he was creative, ambitious and a dreamer.  He wore this wondrous hat that I couldn't help but covet portraits with.  

After I finished the fashion shoot, I ran into his home and asked him to grab his hat and leather jacket if he was willing.  He was.    

Lesson Learned: trust your gut and don't be afraid to ask people for what you want.  Sometimes people need courage.
